    We would like to take this opportunity to wish all members, friends of the IFoA and their families a very happy Chinese New Year.

    In Chinese culture, rats are seen as a sign of wealth and surplus, and represent wisdom and quick thinking. We do hope that, in line with these good values and excellent prospects, we can continue to work together to drive our profession forward this year. 

    The flagship IFoA Asia Conference 2020 will be held on 24-25 June in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. We look forward to seeing you there.  

    Wishing you all the best for the year ahead.

    Stephen Mann, Chief Executive and Tan Suee Chieh, President-elect, Institute and Faculty of Actuaries

    At the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries’ (IFoA) Annual General Meeting on 26 June 2019, the new President John Taylor launched our new certificate in Data Science.

    Available in 2020, the standalone online Certificate in Data Science will be available to members at all stages of their careers, wherever they are located across the globe.

    It will focus on areas such as Data Visualisation, Machine Learning, AI and Ethics, and the relevance of these to the future work of our members in established and newer areas of actuarial work. As this is such a fast-moving field, it is expected that Certificate holders will also need to demonstrate relevant elements of continuing professional development (CPD) within their normal annual CPD requirement.

    We will be finalising development of the Certificate over the next few months and expect enrolment to start in March 2020. More details will be available on our website shortly, alongside an opportunity to express interest in registering for this credential. You can access our new data science hub on our website for a wide range of data science content.
